Carmon was like a big brother to me. I have known him since childhood growing up in the Ahloso community. He touched the lives of a lot of people and he will always be remembered. My sympathies to Jo and the rest of his family.

Carmon and I have been friends since the early '70s. We were both Marines and enjoyed the same hobby of gun collecting and trading.
I have a lot of good memories back when he opened his shop on Friday afternoon several of our friends would gather there for coffee and snacks and have a great time. I will certainly miss him and the good times we had.
